Book Title Writing SECRET #1: Grab Their Attention
It often happens that book writers have great content, even greatsales letters and press releases, but their title is a dismal, limpdescriptive bore.
This is not the place to "save your best" marketing for the press release.
You want your book title to reach out and grab the browser's attention instantly by being personal, controversial and knowingexactly what is "front-of-mind" for your market.
Use strong words, action words, and controversy (within reason)to capture your prospect's attention.

For example, you've selected dieting as your subject area - and you discover that what your market is REALLY interested in rightnow is diets that are not dangerous to your health.
Your title could be something like:
WARNING: What You Don't Know About Low-Carb Diets That May Hurt You.

Once you have grabbed their attention, tapped into their interest,the final step is to convince them that YOU, the author, offersa believable, unique and better fulfillment of their desire thanothers do.
You can create curiosity by:
- giving your approach it's own "technology" name

- promising results
Book Title Writing SECRET #4: Overcoming Objections
